Draw a self portrait using any medium on 18 x 24 in. paper. You may choose to take a humorous or objective approach to rendering your portrait. The two student drawings above illustrate a more subjective rendering of their portraits. The tree with landscape is clearly a more humorous approach while suggesting a connectedness the artist feels with the world around him. The second drawing with its reflection in the mirror supported by the braced hand makes a poignant commentary on the passing of time as well as some of the hardships one experiences with aging.
